Finally was able to play both the 1000 and 3000 at normal heights with pedals at SA in NYC yesterday before Billy Joel concert.

They also had a PX560 which I was a little more impressed with- perhaps due to the 2 additional speakers and placement?

There were some things about the 1000/3000 I found different- not good or bad - but perhaps not all entirely suited to my preferences.

Due to the lower height, it was different having the tops of the black keys so close to the casing.
The mid range and upper range sounded decent- but if I was playing lower octaves like A1 and A2- at a higher volume I felt as though the keyboard was trying to push the sound and air through and not coming up with as musical a tone as I get for the same notes in my Yamaha P125.

I didn't think the Rhodes sounds on the 3000were all that inspiring.

I should have read the 1000 manual before I left- is it hold a key down and a function button to switch piano sounds?
Its a little clearer of course on the 3000 and my Yamaha.



My final verdict is I'm sticking with the 125 as my mobile board; but if I didn't have that I would probably have gone with the 1000.

I purchased the Casio S 3000 because it had a nice piano sound and nice action , I guessed that by watching the videos speaking of witch I made a video playing with the Casio Jazz trio on the Concert Grand piano which is the first one that comes up , I am playing through my Electrovoice ZXA1 speakers and I titled the song Grilled Cheese , go to Mike Lupinetti on You Tube to hear it .

Hi all, I just signed up for the forum but I’m reading the articles here for a long time.
I got my px-s3000 delivered beginning of april. I got a package deal together with the stand, a seat, the bag and some headphones.
The Casio representatives came to my place (Singapore) and assembled everything in my living room - very professional service!

[Linked Image]

Actually I was eyeing to purchase a Kawai, either the es110 or the mp7se. I really liked the sound of these but I was only able to play the es110 in a store. I don’t like how to operate this piano for settings and changing sounds. Also the key spacing were very uneven on the es110.
Kawai didn’t release an es120 so far but Casio innovated with the px-s line and made me change my mind.

The px-s3000 is top notch build quality and it looks great in my living room were it is always on my radar and motivates me to practise more. It sounds and plays great and it comes with so many features.
It’ll take a while to explore everything.
The Chordana app helps to get a quick overview of the settings but I like that I can just press a button and it is ready to play.

I have my iPad Air 2 connected via USB for midi and the iPad’s headphone output goes into the line in of the Casio.
With that setup I can use the piano’s speakers or headphone output for both devices without any audio interface.

I’m still at the beginning of my piano journey and I tested several apps with that configuration like Yousician, Simply Piano, Flow Keys and Playground Sessions. All of them work great and they are a lot of fun.
I wouldn’t recommend the Bluetooth audio for apps, there is a noticeable delay but with a cable it’s perfect for playing.

Here is a video where I recorded the mix (background music from iPad) directly with the piano’s audio recording function on a USB stick. Once the music starts, it’s the unchanged wav file.

Just took out my new CASIO PX S1000 for a test today (I keep it on my work desk), and noticed I'm not getting stereo from the audio input... only left channel, in both regular speaker mode, and if connected via headphones to the piano.
Is this normal for anyone else, can any other owners confirm something similar?
--
My steps of troubleshooting:
I'm currently connected to my PC via the rear 3.5 mm stereo audio-out/headphone jack in the back.
I tested the jack with multiple headphones, stereo testing OK.
I tested the cable to confirm it is outputting stereo Left/Right to another speaker, stereo testing OK.
With audio jack connected to PX S1000, stereo testing from speakers plays only left channel, with headphones connected to the piano while still connected to PC, playing only left channel.


All work and no piano make Homer something something.

@pianosx this should work in stereo.
Make sure, the cable is pushed in all the way or try to pull it out a tiny bit.
I use a standard stereo cable but sometimes the cables can vary slightly in thickness.
There are also 3.5 mm cables that have an additional connection for microphones (headsets) that might not work as expected.
If possible, try a different cable.
If nothing helps, contact your dealer.

Cables can be really troublesome. I guess that is why Apple tries to get rid of them by promoting wireless Bluetooth audio which works fine on the PX-S3000 for song playback.
I hope that one day, Bluetooth will be fast enough to play without delay, too.

Thanks @Martin Kulig for the reply.

I brought in a new audio cable to test, and it seems to be working fine.

Weird, guess the old cable has got to go.

Glad I don't have to deal with an RMA.

Time for some further testing, I haven't compared it with my PX-160 yet as it is in a different location, depending on how convenient it is, I might get rid of my PX-160.

Quick question, what's the name of the piece they played in this ad (starts at 0:50)? I've heard it often but kept on forgetting its name confused

Thanks!

Can the PX-S3000 be used as a controller? Also compared to the MP11SE, is the PX-S3000 keybed lighter?

It has USB to host connection, so you can control a computer with software. However it doesn't have MIDI out and you can't use it to control other keyboards. There are some elaborate schemes that would allow to connect the USB cable to a powered USB hub and then connect the other keyboard with a USB cable to the same hub and then also connect an intermediate USB host to the hub which will forward the data between the two devices (the keyboards). People have also used iPhone as an intermediate host.

Jeremy See reviewed the PX-S1000 and claims, in the following video (around the 02:15 mark, that the action "feels" like that of a semi-weighted keyboard rather than a fully weighted keyboard. Can someone confirm this?



I already have synth action as well as semi-weighted keyboards and was actually considering either the CDP-S100 or the PX-S1000 mainly for use as a midi controller. If they are going to "feel" like a semi-weighted keyboards, I'll look at the previous generation Casio actions in the CDP/PX/AP series which I have tried out and do like.

I've played a CDP-S100 and apart from the very short pivot point which makes it hard to play near the end of the keys, the action feels heavy and solid, doesn't remind a synth action at all. I don't know who this guy is but I remember he was the one who compared various digital pianos by just using excerpts from other people's reviews, and of course staying under 5 seconds or whatever the YouTube requirement is for not punishing him. I wouldn't trust him TBH.

Then it would suit me quite well and I wouldn't have to pay the additional $300 for the PX-S1000. I plan to replace my midi controller with this unit, see how my piano work goes and then decide if it makes sense to go big (within reason).

I finally played the S-1000 today. I have to say i was very impressed with the action. What i liked most about it is the dynamics, the keys "melt" further down when hitting those ff notes, it almost felt like it has escapement.

I have some reservations about the texture of the keys though, i found it a little extreme but i think it's something i get used to. I also wish the "Stage piano" preset was included in the S-1000 as i heard great things about that preset. Either way, if i buy it, it will end up controlling my sample libraries anyway (Keyscape, Ravenscroft etc...).

So far, my favorite actions after a week of testing digital pianos are: S-1000, Dexibell S9 and FP-90.

Both the CDP-S series as well as the PX-S series are supposed to have the same action with the PX-S series action being the "smarter" of the two. Some people say the "smartness" is purely software-based. In that case, what I am unsure about is, does this smartness only affect how the built-in sound engine treats input, or will it be just as smart when sending midi messages to a PC?

If it's the former, then for the midi controller use case, there is no difference between the models as far as the action is concerned. There might, of course, be differences in half pedaling, three pedal unit connectivity, and presence/absence of knobs and wheels.

It’s not the same action. It’s a completely new action from the ground up on the new PX-S 1000/3000. What you’re talking about is the hi-res midi which affects only the internal sounds. I’m talking about the mechanical aspects of the action.

I'm also under the impression that mechanically the action in the PX and CDP are exactly the same. The only difference being in the PX they are smarter, probably utilizing faster processing which may eventually result in better precision, playability, repetition detection, etc.
